What good can you do in one hour?
We all have 8760 hours in a year...
Think you can donate one to make a difference?
To extract as much community betterment and philanthropy out of Omaha's communities, organizations, and businesses in a fun, positive, and competitive 24 hour period.
This event would be open to any company, organization, school group, religious organization, knitting club, etc. in the Omaha area.
Each organization chooses exactly one hour to do as much good as they can. The type of good that each group performs is up to you. Get creative or do something you love.

*Not sure if we can legally guarantee that, but it will be a good thing for you and the community, nonetheless.
